First, don’t be misguided when on your search; the Marina comes up as being in Castries – it’s far from this industrial city. We managed eventually to pin it down: it’s in lovely Marigot Bay.
Airborne's owners, Sarah and Pablo will provide you with a list of likes and dislikes for when this type of accommodation is or is not for you.
But if you like living in a casual community of boats and boaters, with access to an extremely well run resort and some of its great facilities, Airborne is an ideal place to ‘’step out’’ for a while. You will meet people of many different nations in this community, which almost changes daily as well. Happy hour (two for one drinks from 17:00 – 18:00) at the Chateau Mygo’s ‘’Hurricane Hole Bar’’, a bar and restaurant on the beach, is a great place to meet the world and make new friends, and then have dinner there as well.
The boat is comfortable for two and has everything you might need for your stay, and with all the places to eat within walking distance, you’ll find yourself basically doing breakfasts and snacks on board. The fridge is a good size by boat standards and provides ample cooling and ice for your favourite drinks. Having owned and sailed boats ourselves, we found Airborne a good choice for our stay. While there is a small grocery shop right at the marina, you will do better stopping off on your way in at the Massy Supermarket at Cul De Sac. The Marina simply charges what they can, and without any competition in easy walking distance, they can. There’s also a bank machine and a bank at the Marina, should you find yourself short on cash. We found it best, to bring EC from home.
Your hosts, Sarah and Pablo are very helpful and will provide you with many good tips for restaurants and day trips. If you get in early enough, they also have a small 4x4 for rent, should you wish to do so, or they can hook you up with a rental service. We opted for a taxi from Hewanorra Airport – a fixed USD 70.00 for two of us, and found Janus Gyan email@example.com to provide exceptional service. I can only highly recommend him. We also really enjoyed our day-trip by water-taxi with Sava (Shashamané - Sarah’s tip) down to Soufriere and the Pitons (firstname.lastname@example.org ). He would stop at every beach on the way down, explain the history of each area and let us take a swim or snorkel where we felt like it. See my complete review of him also on Tripadvisor. Book Airborne and go!
